Grants Past, Oregon.
Dnf folks at horn:
Sunday evening I arrived at th
homo camp and again assumed my
datle with the squadron, after hav
ing been away II dayi on furlough.
There were a number ot letter and
paper from all of you awaltlnf me,
and of course the first thing I did
wu to read all of them. This morn
ing I bad to read the letter again
to thoroughly Imprest rerythlng on
my mind. Now for a description or
There were alx ot ut in the party
who stayed together about all ot
the time, ho wo had a Jolly little
crowd. We had to change train In
Parte, to naturally took the oppor
tunity to make a little stay there
both going and coming. While there
w stayed at the T. M. C. A. hotel
which la well located and fire quite
good accommodations. We bought
a map and guide ot Paris, and as 1
peak the most French 1 was elected
to pilot the bunch. Although our
time, waa Tory limited we were able
to make a hasty visit to most ot the
Interesting historic place. However
all ot the finest pieces ot statuary
and works ot art are covered with
sandbag for protection against, air
raids. Nevertheless It Is a beautiful
city even now and the people are
quit animated, so I can imagine it
must be a wonderful place In peace
We made a circle somewhat as fol
lows. I am strong for panoramic
views, especially when I want to get
my bearings In a strange place. So
the first thing we did wss to climb
the highest hill In Paris on which
atands the beautiful, modern Church
. of the Sacred Heart IL'Egtlte de la
Sacre-Coeur). From there we de
scended to the Madeleine, a tine old
church of the Oreclan type ot ar
chitecture, and then wo passed the
world famous Opera on our way to
the Palace de 1 Concorde. From
there wo rode out the magnificent'
Avenue des Champa-Elysees to the
am Am TriomDhe de L'Etollle.
through which we all want to msroh
after the victory, as did the troops
of Naooleon more than 100 years
aco. From the Arch w went down
' through the Trocadero and gardens
and crossed the river Seine to me
.r th Eiffel Tower. At the
Hotel Des Invalldes we examined the
tine collection ot war relics ot all
kinds, ancient and modern, and near
by wo aw the tomb of Napoleon I.
Sack across the Seine by the beauti
ful Pont (bridge) Alexander III, paat
the tittta and Grand Palaces,
through the- Garden of the Tulleriee
to the Palace of the louvre, from
which most of the exhibits have been
removed.' Then we went to the Pal
ace of the Luxembourg, the Odeon,
tha Pantheon, the famous and grand
old Cathedral de Norte Dame (Our
Lady) ..Then past the Palace of
Justice, the Hotel De Vllte (the
name ot the municipal administra
tive buildings In every French town)
to the Palace ot the Bastille, where
the French asserted their Independ
ence in 1789, then to the -Palace de
la Republlque whereon is the fine
monument of the same name, and
later to other places of less Interest,
too numerous to mention. I gave a
French dealer money' to aend you a
small book of colored views of Paris,
let me know if you do not receive it.
From Paris to Lyons the trip wax
tiresome. The train was packed so
there was barely standing room. It
traveled slowly, and because of the
many iralus ot American soiaiera ou

Wo spent a night and a day at Ly
ons, aad used the time tq good ad
vantage. It is the third largest city
la France, built at the junction ot
the Rhone and Saonne rivers. There
are some nice buildings and bridges
there and some tine pieces of statu
ary; one fountain in particular la
very striking, called the Fontaine
Bartholdt. On the highest hill there
la a tower from which you can see
tor miles over the fertile valley ot
the Rhone and even to some ot the
most promluent peaks ot the Alps.
Besides the tower Is the beautiful
church of Notre-Dauie de Fourvlere,
which Is easily seen from all parts
ot the city, but Is not easily reached.
The people must be very energetic
and ploua If they worship there often
Americana are not so common In Ly
ons and everywhere I could hear the
expressions "Oh, voyet lea Amerl

course we were trested royally, every

dier Is In great favor here now.

Lord Palmeraton "Pam" a be wa
affectionately termed by his friends
was one of the shrewdest statesmen
that ever lived. When petitioned by
the Scotch clergy to appoint a day for
fasting and prayer, so that a threat
ened epidemic of cholera might be
averted, he replied:
"Clean yonr streets, keep your homes
clean, promote cleanliness and health
among the poor, see that they are
plentifully supplied with good food
and clothing, and employ right sani
tary measure generally, and yon will
have no occasion to fast and pray, nor
win the Lord hear yonr prayer while
these bis prcventor remain unheeded."
